24-Minute Music Program with
featuring commentary

24-minute Music Only show

7-minute NOVOS TV interview
and concert video excerpts

There are 3 programs: (1) MUSIC ONLY, (2) MUSIC WITH COMMENTARY, or (3) VIDEO. The first two contain complete recordings of the 5 movements mentioned above. Total length of each audio progam is 24 minutes. The video version includes conducting appearances plus Midwest interviews. Length is 7 minutes. (The audio interview was conducted by telephone on June 2, 2005 by Max McKee from Ashland, Oregon to Jan Van der Roost at his home in Kontich, Belgium.)

The idea for this series is based on Ira Novoselsky's ongoing activity creating interesting, complete programs for traditional radio. When Bandworld Magazine went exclusively online in 2004, it became obvious that the Internet provides a way to get to a much broader audience. NOVOS was chosen in honor of Ira, who has contributed in many ways to the development of Bandworld Magazine and the American Band College Center for Research.
